So, Crazy Larry wants to build the Birmingdome out at the dog track rather than downtown. Gosh, I wonder who that would help?
Why, it’s politically connected and oft-investigated gambling entrepreneur Milton McGregor! What are the odds?
Also wanting to build at the dog track, to no one’s surprise, is John “Horse Track” Rogers, the state legislator whose fault the dog track (once the horse track in Rogers’s name) largely is. Amazingly, the main road the dog track is located on is John Rogers Drive. If Larry really wants to get on Rogers’ good side, he could always name the stadium the JohnRogersDome.
